Meditation of the Week – Meditation on the Blessed Mother – October 31

Mary is the Virgin presenting offerings. Mary, as stated in Marialis Cultus, is the example of that worship which consists in making our own life an offering pleasing to God. For her the “rejoice” of the Annunciation soon became “a sword will pierce your soul because that Child would be a sign of contradiction.” (Lk 2:35). It is an allusion to the passion of the Son which will become her passion. Mary shared from moment to moment the experience of the Son, and transformed her fiat into a daily Stabat, faithfully adhering to the mission that the Father entrusted to her. St. Maximillian called this stage of life “suffering out of love.” Jesus did not come down from the Cross, Mary did not move away from the Cross. So Jesus has loved us!
